If you're looking for an artful way to spend a few hours...this is it! Just stopped by because we saw it on our way to Austin and I'm so glad we did! We were able to see a full demonstration of glass-blowing and the artisans were so informative. Beautiful works of art - yes, these are high-end pieces and priced... More

We visited this artist 15 years ago and were happy to see the progress he's made over the years. He's present in the studio to ask questions and there are demonstrations of glass blowing to view in a separate area. Love, love, love their work! Fun outing for all ages to watch artists at work.

We thoroughly enjoyed watching the glass blowers team-work as they created a large glass lamp globe. There is an amphitheater style viewing area in the shop and the artists provided running commentary as they worked together. We stayed quite some time, watching in awe. You might want to have your sunglasses handy even though you are indoors: the fire in... More

Fun place to see how glass is made, they explain as they go and answer questions. The people who work there are super nice. If I could afford it, I would totally have them do pieces for my house! The prices are reasonable for art glass pieces, but not cheap. You'll need to be extra careful if you have small... More

The glass blowing demonstrations are amazing! This is a must see for anyone visiting Wimberley. The demonstrations are free and there is a gallery where glass pieces can be purchased.

Stopped in on our drive to visit the town of Wimberley and ended up hanging out here for over an hour. Not only did we see several breathtaking pieces of glass artwork, we were fortunate to see a demonstration of glass blowing by Tim deJong himself. He was very personable and engaging. Call ahead for the demonstration times, but don't... More

This is a small glass works between San Marcos and Wimberley. They schedule hourly glass blowing demonstrations in their shop, which has a few rows of comfortable, stadium-style seating, but is otherwise very open to the shop, the heat, etc. We found the demonstration to be amazing, and the end products produced their to be beautiful works of glass art....

Wimberley is a quiet little town with much to offer. One of the interesting things to do there is to visit the Wimberley Glass Works. You can watch as they demonstrate and tell about making glass. There is also a showroom with pieces to purchase. They make lamps, bowls, vases, jewelery and decorative items. It is always on our list... More

We stopped by here on our way back home to San Antonio. The art is super expensive, so we didn't buy anything. Wish they had some small items to purchase for $5-20, just so we had something to bring home from the experience. The demonstration was interesting, but it was super hot in there. Maybe going in the winter would... More

Really enjoyed Wimberley Glass Works. It's free to watch the glass blowing and tour the gallery. Arrived just as they started the last glass blowing demonstration of the day on a Saturday. The owner was holding the demonstration and gave lots of information as he worked. Very interesting and informative. There is a nice wooden bench (bleacher style) seating area... More
